. we don't believe that we ought to be raising taxes on middle income americans, which is exactly what the ryan budget will do. if you are going to sort the voucherize medicare, and then say to them with this voucher, you shop around, but then i've got to make up the difference with the insurance, then that's raising taxes on people who are on medicare. at the same time, you cutting taxes to people in the upper income categories. then we want a block grant, medicaid. that means that there are seniors who will find themselves being shopped around from state to state to find which nursing home will be able to take them. that is the kind of stuff that we ought not have. we ought to have a national medicaid program, a national medicare program, and it should be a guarantee. it should not be a voucher to shop around to insurance companies. >>> but congressman, there's going to have to be compromise before anything gets done. from the president's vision, if there is to be another grand bargain, it would require changes on entitlements. are you and the other members of the democratic caucus w

reforming our tax code to produce savings and apply both of those savings to reducing our deficit. if we do it that way, if we do it in a balanced way that asks the well-off and well-connected to pay a little bit, to contribute a little bit to deficit reduction, not just seniors and middle class then we don't have to put all of the burden on seniors and the middle class while giving a massive, massive tax cut yet again to the wealthiest folks. the president felt very good about his meetings. he a great session with senate republicans yesterday and you saw numerous quotes i think from senate republicans that reflected the fact that it was a good meeting and a constructive meeting and there really is the potential for common ground. but the differences are large and they remain large do get back to your point, when it comes to deficit reduction, it may be that the gab is too wide to reach a deal. the president hopes that's not the case, but we'll see, it's certainly worth having this engagement to try to find common ground. >> why did it take so long? i know you're going to say he's met with

they have to in whatever way, shape or form they must to protect their loop holes in the tax code, to protect tax rates. they will do whatever they have to in order to preserve their special interest. so the president has an obligation it reach out to grass roots and to reach out to as many people as we can to participate in our battle for right priorities for the middle class and retiries in this country. >> we have to leave it there. congressman steve israel, thanks for being with us today. >> thanks, andrea. >>> what stories will make the 24 next on "andrea mitchell reports." ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico? happier than dikembe mutumbo blocking a shot. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, f

. i...i mean, . >>> the one thing we've seen is $1 trillion in higher taxes, taxing more, borrowing more and spending more is not a path to prosperity. >> that was congressman paul ryan on the hill. pleased that democrats are bringing bunts budgets to the table. maryland congressman chris van holland is the ranking member on the house budget committee. he joins me now, congressman van holland. good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon to you, luke. >> i want to get your take on house republicans are panning the democratic budgets that will be voted on tomorrow. your budget, the black caucus budget, the progressive budget, various ones have no chance of becoming law. is there any worry that the idea that republicans are putting forward that our budget balances, our budget balances, a very good sound bite that can work in mid-term elections. whereas you guys' isn't balanced until about 2040. is there any worry that the message could take hold and cause problems for you in the 2014 mid-terms? >> no, luke, for this reason -- the republican budget, the ryan budget balances on t

. and of course, others more conservative who said they're just not going to raise taxes. we saw that reflected to some extent in the op-ed that house speaker john boehner wrote today, in which he really called on the president to come forward more with entitlements, to be willing to give up more on entitlements, that of course is the other big sticking point in these negotiations. i can tell you, andrea, that according to a senior administration official, the president is planning to have more of these meetings, once he returns from israel. apparently during this so-called charm offensive, which really started last week and continued into this week. a number of republicans did express a desire to have more meetings. so in terms of what got accomplished, everyone agrees this was really a first step. and nothing major was accomplished, nothing tangible. however, there is a sense that there will be future conversations and that there is some potential room there for movement. >> andrea? >> and chris icillizza, we're told now that. >>> amy was right, supporting it and is one thing. going out and s
